The Stars At Night Are Big And Bright

An unidentified flying object almost collided with a Boeing 737 as it approached the runway at Leeds Bradford Airport on September 1.

The rogue object came at the packed Boeing 737 plane “almost head on” as pilots prepared to land at Leeds Bradford airport.

The scare on September 1 was rated a ‘Category A’ event by the UK Airprox Board – which monitors and investigates near-miss events. The unidentifiable object – which could have been a drone or lantern – was just 10 feet away from the flight arriving from Spain.

The Airprox report revealed: “Both pilots suddenly saw a bright light and an object which appeared to be moving toward the aircraft, almost head on, slightly up and to the left. “The object appeared without warning and there was no time to act.”

The airliner landed safely before the Cylon raider fired its missiles. Sadly, it destroyed Leeds United’s Elland Road soccer stadium. Eh, no big loss.

A Glorious Headshot

A swimsuit model has been injured on the job after being struck in the pumpkin by a drone. Oh, the humanity!

Swimsuit models are used to getting up close and personal with cameras on photoshoots. But one drone-mounted lens got a little too close to one U.S. beauty, crashing into the back of her head as she frolicked on the beach.

Incredible footage shows the flying robot follow two young women dressed in tiny bikinis as they dash into the surf. The alarming video takes the drone’s point of view as it moves swiftly to the point of impact and then tumbles.

Amazingly the model stays on her feet after the bruising experience, but has a nasty surprise when the drone’s rotors get caught in her hair.

Russian Gets Medieval On Drone

Russian Medieval Actor Takes Out Drone With SpearYea verily, thou must witness thine post which shineth the light upon a brave warrior. A knight of chivalrous gallantry, this nobleman smote an iron dragon with a spear, straight and true.

Footage posted to YouTube by drone owner Gennady Tolcheev shows an aerial view of the Rusborg medieval festival in the Lipetsk region as reenactors are preparing to recreate the “battle for the bridge.”

A costumed participant can be seen moving away from his comrades before throwing his spear, which scores a direct hit and knocks the drone out of the air.

“The lance was not a fighting weapon, it had a softened tip,” a festival organizer told the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper. “Therefore the quadcopter was not destroyed, it just dropped to the ground.”

Thou can see the video below the fold.
